I worked at Lehman Brothers

Pros

Lehman was a good place to work. Salary and benefits were good. Fellow employees were smart and good to work with.

Cons

Total comp included restricted stock units that could not be acted upon for five years after receiving them. Large company made upward mobility difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lehman as it was ceases to exist. Middle management did a good job and treated employees well. I am satisfied with how I was treated.

    I worked at Lehman Brothers

    Pros

    - aside from intelligent and quick people, they were also fun and supportive, not the typical banking stereotype (but depends on who you get on projects, I was lucky)

    Cons

    - hours that are typical, facetime exists

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - now transitioned to Barclays, who has been doing a great job with N.America

    I worked at Lehman Brothers

    Pros

    The company was very helpful in allowing me to work from home when I moved. Lehman also did a good job of making training available to both consultants and employees

    Cons

    There was very little training for consultants. Senior Management drove company into ground and the months following the bankruptcy were chaotic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish they didn't destroy the company with their short-sighted plan for growth. I've heard that former Lehman employees are not given the same respect as old and new Barclays hires
